Computer Storage Services has launched a high-end data dtorage division, to be headed up by Helen Vermij.

“This division of the company is completely channel-focused and will give the channel the services and assistance they deserve to design, close and supply storage systems," says Vermij.

"Too many storage distributors are diversifying and losing focus on storage products.Our core company focus is to provide the channel with the right product and a full support value add, that includes support and technical assistance round the clock."

The company has invested several months in training and getting the technical team certified on the new emerging technologies which include solid state hard drives, new storage systems such as de-duplication which will be offered to the channel through a dedicated team of salespeople and experts.

With the inception of the high-end storage business unit, CSSI now offers all six pillars of data storage including the offsite data storage vault, the first of it skind on the continent. This means CSSI is the first company in South Africa to provide the solutions and support for the full data life cycle, from the creation and storage of data on a hard drives through to the archival of data in the first of its kind data vault, according to MD James Grcic.
